The FAA will impose stiff civil penalties against anyone caught shining a laser into the cockpit of an airplane. 

A statement from Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood says shining a laser into a cockpit is “not a joke.”  LaHood insists that lasers can temporarily blind a pilot.  So far this year, pilots have reported more than one-thousand cases of lasers being directed at planes.  Individual fines could reach 11-thousand dollars.  Congress is considering legislation making it a federal crime to point a laser device at an airplane.
